Gettysburg, PA (PRWEB) June 02, 2014
Graphcom, Inc., a full-service communications and marketing firm in Gettysburg, Pa., recently received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certification. This certification is awarded to environmentally responsible businesses that comply with all FSC requirements. This includes using products that come from well-managed forests and are shipped and handled in a manner that conserves energy.
With this certification, Graphcom is helping their clients choose products that contribute to global conservation, community wellbeing, and economic stability. If a client consults Graphcom to print a magazine, the recipient may track the project from Graphcom where it was produced, to the mill where pulp was turned into paper, to the forester that harvested the trees. This creates a chain of custody that makes the recipient fully aware that their products originated with a forester that practices responsible harvesting.
“From our humble beginnings as a small local firm, we’ve always used sound environmental practices,” says Matt Livelsberger, president of Graphcom. “As a green business, we want our clients to be aware of our environmental standards and practice sustainability as well. This certification acts as a guarantee that their products aren’t being compromised or destroying forests and wildlife in order to be produced.”
The FSC sets standards for responsible forest management to protect forests for future generations. The organization’s mission is to promote environmentally sound, socially beneficial, and economically prosperous management to stop illegal deforestation that contributes to global warming and loss of animal habitat. Graphcom was audited and will be audited annually by Bureau Veritas to maintain FSC certification.
